The Champions Came Without Shoes

A message from John Jordan, a dedicated Oak Bay Rotarian:

A story the club might be interested to hear about. This place is full of hard-scrabble winners. If they can make a championship out of their field in the jungle, they will make a springboard of the platform we give them. So many opportunities to support here!

Blessings, John
